Postby kandrepavan » Fri Jul 06, 2012 11:42 am

Hi all,

i have 2 questions.

1) How to show the time running on the screen ie the time minutes ,seconds should increase automatically
on the screen and should be visible.
2) Suppose we have any text msg on the screen , that msg should be scrolled either backward or forward.

Hope , some will help me out.

Thanx and regards

You are talking about PC functions and services, not about CICS funtions. A properly designed CICS program sends out a message and ends, the program stops running and waits for the user to enter information or react. This is called Transaction oriented processing. You need to read and learn more about this.

As mongan said, you REALLY need to learn some CICS before asking questions.

Your #1 cannot be done on a CICS screen since clock display requires constant interaction with a CPU and CICS screens do not have that type of interaction.
Your #2 is handled by the application being coded to use PF7 (backwards) and PF8 (forwards) keys. The input is received, the application prepares the next screen of data, displays it, and then returns to CICS until the next input is received. Having a scrollable text box field on a CICS screen that mimics the properties of a PC screen, however, cannot be done under CICS.
